During an extremely long and a bit narcissistic conference (Lei Jun, the founder of the company, told his story for 1h30, from 2010 to 2020 …), Xiaomi has just announced three products that we hope to see land one day in France.
The most incredible of them, announced at the end of the keynote, is the Mi TV LUX, a transparent OLED TV. When the device is off, you can see through.
A unique design
Recently present on the OLED TV market, Xiaomi hits hard with its transparent screen. The device’s components are located in its base, which also serves as a speaker. When switched off, the screen is therefore completely invisible and, magic of the OLED, the Mi TV LUX can display holographic objects while keeping the rest of the screen invisible. Only the necessary pixels are lit.
For the moment, we know too little about the characteristics of this strange device. Xiaomi only communicated about its size of 55 inches, its thickness of 5.7 mm (at least for the screen) and its refresh rate of 120 Hz. The price remains completely unknown although we can easily imagine that it will be very high.
Mi 10 Ultra, the smartphone of all superlatives
120W wired charging, 50W wireless charging, 10W reverse charging, quad camera module with 120x zoom, 120Hz refresh rate OLED display, Snapdragon 865 processor, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, up to 16GB RAM and 512 GB of storage… The characteristics of the Mi 10 Ultra are enough to make geeks dream. It must be said that with this smartphone, Xiaomi hits very hard. The device ticks all the boxes and has little to envy its competitors. Connected to its charger, the device would only take 23 minutes to fully recharge its 4500 mAh battery according to Xiaomi, enough to compete with the Oppo Flash Charge.
According to Xiaomi, the Mi 10 Ultra is the best photo smartphone on the market. Equipped with a quadruple camera module with a giant main sensor (1 / 1.32 inch) of 48 Mpix, this smartphone offers a record zoom, x10 optical, x120 digital … The real rival of the Mi 10 Ultra is the P40 Pro + from Huawei , also equipped with a periscope zoom x10. Until today, however, Huawei has always fared better than its compatriot. To see if Lei Jun’s company gets past this time.
Marketed in China between 5299 Yuan (655 euros) and 6999 Yuan (855 euros), the Mi 10 Ultra should cost more than 1000 euros in France based on the price of the Mi 10 Pro already sold 999 euros. Nothing has been announced for the international for the moment. We should also mention the existence of new Xiaomi wireless chargers. One of them can charge two devices at the same time regardless of their location, like Apple’s discontinued AirPower.
A Redmi K30 Ultra on track to become the Mi 10T
Finally, Xiaomi announced a high-end version of its Redmi K30, a device launched under the name of Pocophone F2 Pro in France. The Redmi K30 Ultra becomes one of the first smartphones on the market equipped with MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000+ processor, a high-end 5G compatible chip. Its 6.67-inch OLED display does not have a notch or punch since its front camera is hidden in a mechanical drawer.
Marketed in China 1999 Yuan (244 euros), the Redmi K30 Ultra has everything a good deal. In France, according to information from 01net.com, this device could take the name of Mi 10T. We recently heard that Xiaomi was planning to launch it in September. There is no doubt that we will have the opportunity to go into details by then.
More anecdotally, Xiaomi took advantage of his conference to unveil … a kart designed with Lamborghini. The technological prowess is less, but the fun is just as strong.
